Like My Kitty?

This kitty has it going on.   I took few liberties (beyond the eyes) from the original block 4 Bit of Bliss pattern.  My learning here... When fusing a a mixed black and white print... it begs for a visually finished edge... in this case...I added a very narrow black thread satin stitch on the polka dot.  I didn't like attempts at clear monofilament or a colored thread blanket stitch.   Sooo..  placed stabilizer on the backside and the satin stitch chosen for both the polka dot and 'fluer' white and black. I do get rid of backside excess stabilizer once done... in this case... a cut away version.
